At the age of 19, Jake Elko took a huge risk in his life and moved roughly 4,500 miles away from his home of Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania. While knowing barely anyone up North, Jake was able to promptly find amity with an extremely creative group of individuals in a beautiful state known as Alaska. Jake started taking his photography seriously prior to his first road-trip across the country, and ever since then he has developed an eye for landscape photography, as well as portrait work.
Photography has inspired Jake to not only appreciate nature, but has also allowed him to document the opportunity, and beauty, behind simply taking a chance. With this influence Jake looks forward to embarking on many travels this year, as well as commencing new creative relationships with imaginative companies.
